Grocery store cuteness...

The Son and I had to go to the grocery store after work this evening. (I had to teach swimming after camp) I had to pick up a few things for my lunches this week and next. I was there yesterday but forgot. Duh. Typical of me. Anyway, The Son said/did two really cute things. He wanted to push the cart. I was just using one of those little ones that they have so I let him. He could hardly see over it but he did a pretty good job. Then he said:

The Son: Mommy, I'm pushing the cart, I'm a big boy. 

Me: That's right Honey, you are a big boy and a good helper. 

The Son: I feel so much older, I think... I feel like I'm five! 

Me: Wow! That's old! (gosh, he's so cute)

As we left, he asked if he could go on one of those rides that you put a couple quarters in and then pray that it actually works for your kid who wants to ride it and I said he could since he was in camp/Kids' Corner all day and I was feeling guilty and he was good in the grocery store. (run on anyone?) The ride, happened to be right by the employee smoking area, (isn't that a stupid spot for the smoking area?)  Well, he rode the ride, it worked thank Goodness and then he got off and walked over to the three smokers (before I could stop him). He very calmly said to them:

The Son: You know, smoking is bad for you. 

Smoker: That's right, I shouldn't do it. 

The Son: Then stop doing it. It's not healthy. 

Smoker: Thank you, you're right, I'm putting it out right now. 

The Son: Ok good. Bye.

We then walked away, they were nice about it but I was a little embarrassed. Maybe he'll make someone think about smoking next time. The kid makes me laugh, that's for sure, and no one will ever accuse him of being shy. I don't know where he gets it. ;)

Okay. That delete was me. I must have had my hands on the keys wrong, and it was horrible. original post was to tell you how precious your "puppy" is. He's getting so big. However, when I picture a lap dog, it's usually a little smaller. I think I agree with you on that one!
